Nick Drake
Bryter Layter

Following the huge success of Nick's third album 'Pink Moon' on deluxe vinyl comes his second album 'Bryter Layter' in a similar deluxe vinyl format, becoming part of the ReDISCovered series.The album is an exact replica of the original 1970 release: it is pressed on heavyweight audiophile vinyl, and remastered from near-original master tapes by the album's original engineer John Wood. For although the original tapes were unusable, John Wood had made a safety copy of the album in 1970 and it is from this that the new album has been struck.It comes in a box containing the original shop poster, a smaller 'Live' poster/brochure and a reprint of Nick's handwritten set list used for his live appearances, together with reproductions of the master tape and box lids. It is housed in an Island card inner bag in a single pocket textured sleeve just as the original release would have been.Purchasers are eligible for electronic download options in hi-resolution formats, regular MP3s and, once more, the DFD-dubbed-from-disc MP3 formats.Most recent vinyl pressings of Bryter Layter have been poor quality, illegal counterfeits; this edition is as close to an original pressing as it is possible to get. Original copies change hands for high collectors prices.Released on March 25th by Island Records in collaboration with USM and available in all territories in an edition limited to demand.
